How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Government fed by the people

Ali Abd Jalil: Who is KJ to tell me never to return?

By Adam Abu Bakar

'Student activist Ali Abd Jalil who fled the country to Sweden in a bid to escape charges of sedition has remarked on the audacity of Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin to order him never to return to Malaysia.

In his posting, Ali said Khairy was already strutting around arrogantly after only becoming a minister less than two years ago.

He also remarked how Khairy was not even born in Malaysia like he was, but had lived abroad for years before returning to Malaysia.

"Khairy was born in Kuwait, lived 20 years abroad, he returned to Malaysia to hold top positions and become extremely wealthy … he acts as if the country belongs to him… who is he to order me never to return to Malaysia?"

He said that unlike Khairy, both he and Alvin Tan, who fled to the US to escape charges of sedition, were born in Malaysia and grew up in Malaysia.

In an anger-filled tone, Ali wrote: "We were imprisoned, threatened, abused, defamed and more. We were treated worse than illegal immigrants. We have been away from the country for just a few months, yet our passports have been revoked even though we do not have a criminal record."

"Between us (Ali and Alvin) and Khairy Jamaluddin, who is more a son of Malaysia?" Ali asked.'


When did Malaysia shut its doors to a Malaysian?

'Today 40 years ago, a Universiti Malaya undergraduate named Hishamudin Rais quietly slipped out of the campus in Pantai and a police cordon to start a long trip to, eventually, self-exile in London.

The police was at the door of Malaysia's oldest university to arrest student leaders who had organised and taken part in protests linked to poverty in Baling, Kedah, as a result of falling rubber prices.'


'One certainly would not expect the Cabinet's youngest minister, an urbane and sophisticated Western-educated man, to even utter such dismissive words to a citizen of Malaysia.

This country belongs to all Malaysians, be they critics or sycophants.'
